Pulled data from your own legally mandated service database Last 15 years, YOUR DATA, we lose power 94.1% of the time when anybody in this zip code loses power Statistically, that's extraordinarily unlikely How could one neighborhood be affected 16 out of every 17 times? I live 2 blocks from businesses with full power in 3 of 4 directions, and neighbors to the south of our side street have power Again. And again and again... There is a design problem and I'm sick of it Fix it
